Your life hasn't ended yet...

When the sun set over yet another dream
there came a chill that cut to the bone,
leaving me standing at life’s shore
… feeling so alone…

As sun’s rays beckoned me goodnight
leaving me to wallow in night’s mist,
I wept, I ached, I cried out in deep regret
longing for one last kiss…

Night fell upon me like death’s icy breath
leaving me shivering in the dark,
and I wept, and I ached, and I cried some more
as it moved to encompass my wounded heart…

And I fell, low, upon bent knee
allowing sorrow to embrace me with its bitterness,
and I wept, and I ached, and I mourned for what was
longing to rip the bleeding heart from my breast…

The tears they dried in the morning hours
the sobs they carried me to sleep’s depth,
where, there, without memory or fear to guide me
I heard peace whispering, “Life’s not ended yet…”

It was in the midst of peace’s tender care
that I found hope reviving my soul,
so when morning came to sweep misery away
I not only awoke but I arose…

And there before me, upon distant horizon
moving towards me with new promises and dreams,
fresh optimism came bearing my name
enabling me to clearly see:

Trials and tests will come our way
and sometimes we may not stand,
but each new day brings another chance
to help us live again…

The pain may cut deep and scar the soul
but life is not for the dead;
so rise up, live, dream, be free,
your life hasn’t ended yet…

Your life hasn't ended yet...
